Today’s Catholic Teacher magazine Raises Rates and Seeks Articles from Freelance Writers


Today’s Catholic Teacher (est. 1967) has posted new writer’s guidelines online to help freelance writers pitch articles to the editors. The quarterly magazine primarily targets private school Catholic educators who teach K-8 in a classroom setting. Because the magazine publishes a wide range of teaching-related articles, freelance writers can pitch any topic of sound advice, local or national concern, or relevance to educators in Catholic schools, such as:

  • Advancements or changes in curriculum, testing, technology, school relationships, creative teaching, school and community concerns, and administration as it relates to the classroom.
  • National concerns, issues, and trends of interest to Catholic educators.
  • Experiential advice on teaching scholastic subjects, including religion. 
  • A new perspective on a popular, seasonal teaching topic.

Writers have the best chance of being published if they focus on a specific topic, cover a topic of national interest, and submit the finished article in a timely matter. The editors especially have a need for articles aimed at educators teaching students in grades 4 through 8.

Word length: around 1500 words per feature article. (Previous word length was divided into 600-800 words; 1,000-1,200 words; and 1,200-1,500 words for feature articles.)

Payment: $300 per feature article. (Previous rates were $100 to $250 per feature article.)

Writers can pitch the editor via email. Read full writer’s guidelines at the Today’s Catholic Teacher website.
